of the white house's proffer here in the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> do you have faith in any of them to rise above? >> would it be okay to go over? >> we will rise above. >> one can only hope. so how should investors brace themselves for the big week ahead? in today's trader triple play, jeff kilburg, along with mahir dongei. steve, you get to go first. would you have expected that today basically a flat-line kind of day for the dow and s&p and so forth, would have been more volatile given greece, given the comments out of washington and in pennsylvania? >> i certainly would have. i'd have thought that the greek news, the bailout tranche, would have been more positive. i would have thought the miss on consumer spending would have been more negative. i would have thought we saw more movement in the futures market before the open. we didn't see that. we waited for the political speakers. they've been pretty much lined up on their sides defending those who voted for therm. they've been moving markets which they didn't do today. >> jeff kilburg, how are you positioning your accounts, your portfo
to the fiscal cliff. we're live at the white house with the very latest. what happened. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the mke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. david: what a strange day. some are way up, some are way down. shares of verifone systems are getting a boost. nicole with more on that. nicole: some stocks jumping, this is a day that verifone is jumping. take a look at the stock right now, a gain of 7.5%. an upgrade from a neutral setting the emerging competition that everybody is worried about is overdone. his growth story is impacted. when they get lake square for example, they are not worried about them at all. with the story they have a price target of $39, which obviously has upside potential clos
presenting a plan to avoid the fiscal cliff. first and foremost, avoiding increasing and eliminating deductions on of her earnings to raise an additional $8 billion. $1.2 trillion in new spending cuts. the white house, no surprise, already rejecting the plan. the president saying the gop plan is out of bounds because it does not include higher taxes on the wealthy. we are joined now by a chief economist. why does it seem the only solution to be satisfied with is to raise taxes on the wealthy? >> they clearly staked out this position during the campaign. they feel they have a mandate for it. i am sort of skeptical. the sticking point is the tax rate question on the wealthy. however, with that said, progress has been made in the sense that the republicans are not willing to raise taxes, not rates, on the rich. democrats are saying they are more open to entitlement cuts, if you will, reform, whatever you want to call it. they are making progress. [talking over each other] the question is: you know, how far are both sides willing to go down to the wire to avoid this. whether it is the d
, the president and the white house shoots down the republican's offer to avoid the fiscal cliff. is he really looking to compromise or is it the president's favorite deal no deal at all? laura ingraham weighs in live from washington in moments. >> brian: the dare program teaches kids about the dangers of drugs, won't talk about pot anymore. the reason? kids will smoke it anyway. they're giving up. really? really? "fox & friends" starts now. >> steve: that is something that they're scratching pot off the list. >> brian: it's legal now in some states and people are making believe they have illnesses so they can smoke it and buy it with prescriptions. >> gretchen: you don't have to make anything up. you can say you have a headache. >> brian: in colorado? can you write a -- you can't, but could dr. siegle? >> steve: for medical marijuana. >> brian: in new york? >> steve: i bet he could if if were legal here. >> gretchen: he was going to sew up your coat and so much more earlier today. >> brian: i don't need a surgeon necessarily. >> gretchen: let's get to your headlines. fox news alert. this one
by the white house to talk about what the president's pitch is regarding the fiscal cliff. he's been adamant, the top 2% have to pay a higher tax rate and apparently he wanted the folks from the leftist network all on board with him. >> so in the bush administration, we would sometimes need to do something like talk radio row, i think we called it. it was brilliant. we had the conservative talk radio hosts lined up and get a hole bunch of interviews so they could be persuaded on president bush's plan on things like tax reform, immigration. so from a tactical standpoint, i think president obama is saying, let me talk to people so they make sure they know where i'm coming from. here is the thing that he could do, he is talking to people who agree with him. although some people on the left actual will he want him to go even further left. i think he felt like he need to do shore up those things. but i think president obama is miss ago big opportunity here. i think if he invited some people who don't agree with him, he might be surprised at what he could accomplish. he might be able to charm them
is willing to do. >> beware, there's a fiscal cliff ahead, but there's still no plan from the president on how to cut spending. >> made a mistake, but i didn't. almost 18, almost 20 years ago. >> a former democratic representative who was convicted of having sex with an underage girl says he's back, and he's running for congress. all of that, plus a shocking new report that gitmo detainees may be coming to america. "hannity" starts right here, right now. new troubles for u.n. ambassador susan rice this as questions surface about her time at the state department when al-qaeda bombed two african embassies in the late '90s, and how the situation parallels what happened prior to the terror attack in benghazi that left four americans dead. yesterday republican senator susan collins met with ambassador rice for 90 minutes, and after the closed-door meeting the senator questioned rice's role at the state department back in 1998 when she served as the assistant secretary of state for african affairs in the clinton administration. watch this. >> those bombings in 1998 resulted in the loss of lif
critical republic who criticized house speaker john boehner over own party fiscal cliff honor says is he resigning. an important man, too. south carolina senator jim demint a key force behind the tea party movement. the founder of the tea party caucus in the senate and who predicted that the healthcare debate would be president obama's water loo. remember that? earlier this week he argued that speaker boehner's proposal tax hikes would destroy jobs. but senator demind says his resignation has nothing to do with the fiscal cliff. it's because he has accepted a job as president of the conservative think tank the heritage foundation. jim demint served three terms as a u.s. congressman from south carolina before voters first elected him to the senate in 2004. mike emanuel is on capitol hill tonight. it's a big resignation,. >> jim demint says is he leaving the senate, shep he is not leaving the fight. in fact, demint might be able to spend more time on issues he is most passionate about at the heritage foundation. he explained his thinking on "special report" a short time ago. >> i think i'm
will go over the fiscal cliff. this is a compromise on taxes. >> so the white house now, christine, is insisting that they won't talk specifics on entitlement reform, which is what republicans want until they budge on those income tax rates, budging on increasing them for wealthy americans. as you know, republicans at this point dug in saying they're not going to do that. the white house feels they have the upper hand here because so many americans, we talked about 7 in 10 think those income tax rates should go up. >> this is a proposal, there are some differences, bowles would not have raged the eligibility age for social security. what does he think of this plan? >> he also thinks another big thing is missing, that's increasing those tack rates for wealthy americans. here's what he said. >> i am positive to get a deal done you will have to have higher tax rates on the top 2%. i'm equally sure the $350 billion worth of cuts that the president put on the table for health care entitlements is not going to be sufficient to get the deal done. there will have to be compromise. >> the w
to the fiscal cliff battle being waged in washington. now, late this afternoon house speaker john boehner sent a letter to the president detailing a bold counter offer to the administration's plan. the g.o.p. proposal does not include a tax increase on the so-caldwell thee but does contain $800 billion in revenue through tax reform, another $600 billion in health savings and much more. all told, the net savings amount to around 2.2 trillion dollars. the white house responded to this letter by saying that the president is, quote, willing to compromise but not on the subject of making job creators pay more in taxes. however, what our tax and spend commander-in-chief fails to understand is that putting money into the hands of you, the american people, is the single best way to spur economic growth, and it's not just people like ronald reagan who understand this principle. bill clinton famously said the era of big government is over and the end of wel welfare as we know it. why? because government is not the answer. government is the problem. there was that other iconic democrat, the one that occu

in the housing market recently. could the fiscal cliff be to blame? certainly looks that way. cnbc's diana olick explains how and why. good morning, diana. >> good morning, carl. signed contracts to buy existing homes took an unexpected leap in october which led us to ask if the fiscal cliff had any hand in it. specifically around short sales which have been an ever increasing share of the housing market. now tax relief on these sales could be in jeopardy and that may be why they're revving up. let me explain. a short sale, where the bank lets you sell your house for less than the mortgage, is debt forgiveness, right? the bank is eating part of the mortgage in order to avoid a more costly foreclosure. debt forgiveness is usually taxable but not under a tax relief law passed five years ago that, yes, expires at the end of next month. if it is not extended because of the fiscal cliff, debt relief will become taxable again and that will affect thousands and thousands of short sales and principal reduction loan modifications many under the big robo signing mortgage settlement. that settlement is why
